Invest Energy to develop South East Asia’s first Waste Heat Recovery plant for SAFRAN

Industry : Aerospace
Project : Waste-to-Energy (WHR)
Details : Energy Generation – 2MW, Chilled Water – 200RT (2018)
Savings : 28% Reduction in Electricity Cost ,~73% carbon emission reduction

Invest Energy developed an Integrated 2MW Waste Heat Recovery plant at Safran Landing System Malaysia (SLSM) in Sendayan Tech Valley, Seremban, Malaysia. The project utilizes the toxic waste gases from SLSM’s plant that is initially emitted to the atmosphere via their chimney towers to produce electricity and heat via a combination of thermal oil heaters and turbines. The electrical power will be used to substitute approximately 20% of SLSM’s existing plant electricity utilization and the heat will be converted in cooling for the entire plant. It will further reduce CO2 emissions by 73% and this will support SAFRAN’s mission of reducing carbon emissions globally. This not only optimizes SLSM’s energy requirements but solves SLSM’s environmental issues in line with global environmental regulations in terms of disposal of toxic waste gases.
